Made up a bunch of blade baits for the fall walleye run on the river. What do you think?

What weight are these? All the same weight? I may have to give the gold/orange color combo a try myself. :)

These are all 1/2 and 3/4 oz. I will be purchasing an 1/8 and 1/4 oz mold soon. I'm in Grimes if you need any.

Those look nice. I am running low on 3/8 ounce and need to make another pour. My mold will make 1/4,3/8,1/2,5/8 and 3/4 sizes.

I do well with the pink/white or the Chartreuse in my local rivers. Hard to tell from that photo but the other colors in that batch were a deep blue with silver metalflake and a brown with a gold metalflake.

The blue heads were done on the nickel blades. Only dipped the head some the body is flashy. The ones that look brown are actually gold. They look great in the sunlight.

It was not a question (note the period nark, rather than a question mark). I was making a statement about the baits and colors in my batch. Here is a better photo.

Cool. Very nice.

Very nice, would love those on Erie in late March, early April. Also would work well jigging Lakers on south end of lake Michigan this fall.
Good job
